Paolo Gargiulo mun flytja fyrirlesturinn "Improving health with engineering solutions: from virtual histology and surgical planning to assessing postural control" í tilefni af framgangi hans til stöðu prófessors við verkfræðideild Háskólans í Reykjavík miðvikudaginn 15. september kl. 15:00 í stofu M103.

Fyrirlesturinn fer fram á ensku. Boðið verður upp á léttar veitingar að fyrirlestri loknum.

Professor Paolo Gargiulo will give his inaugural lecture "Improving health with engineering solutions: from virtual histology and surgical planning to assessing postural control" Wednesday September 15 at 3pm in room M103. The lecture will be in English. There is a reception to follow.

Paolo Gargiulo is a Full Professor and director of the Medical Technology Center - Reykjavik University / University Hospital Landspitali. He studied at TU Wien and finished his Ph.D. in 2008. Paolo interests and expertise are in Medical Image processing, Neuroengineering, 3-D printing, and Medical technologies. He developed at Landspitali a 3D-Printing service to support surgical planning with over 200 operations planned with a significant impact on the Icelandic health care system.
The lecture will retrace Paolos projects, scientific activities, and their local and international impact.
This seminar will outline methods to assess qualitatively and quantitatively muscles and bone from medical imaging modalities. These technologies and techniques have been used to study bone mechanical properties, analyze and quantify muscle morphology, visualize changes with 3D models, develop subject-specific numerical profiles, and assess muscle and bone changes during clinical treatments.
Furthermore, the lecture will summarize the current activities taking place at Reykjavik University within the Institute of Biomedical and Neural Engineering with a special focus on neuro-engineering solutions applied to postural control.
